Course summary

Overview

Do you want to boost your career prospects by studying for an applied science Master's degree alongside your current job?

On this MSc Applied Science Learning at Work Master's course, you'll develop the ability to reflect on your own decisions in the workplace and become an independent learner, able to make sound judgements when faced with complex scientific problems.

You'll extend your knowledge and understanding of the sciences – physics, biology, chemistry or mathematics. And whether you need a breadth of knowledge or to specialise in one area, this course will help you gain the practical skills and learning you need to fulfil your professional and personal aspirations.

Because the course is work-based, you need to already be in a full-time, part-time or voluntary role. If you don't have an undergraduate degree, you could still do this postgraduate course if you have several years experience in a responsible position (such as a military role) or you have high-level skills through experience that isn't reflected in your qualifications.

You can tailor the course to match your professional and personal aspirations and your employer's objectives. The way you learn is flexible, so you can study wherever is most convenient for you and schedule your studies around your existing commitments.

You'll get to put the skills you learn to work instantly in your job, contributing to the success of your company. When you complete the course, you'll improve your career prospects and have the skills and knowledge to perform more effectively in your job.
